With an infinite number of combinations for your best Vanguard Automaton loadouts, its only major downfall is it's magazine size, meaning your first few games will need to be tactical, before unlocking a larger clip.

One of the most effective ways to use the Automaton is to harness its range, with an added sprinkle of speed, and use this is the most prominent assault rifle/flex role weapon.

The beauty of the Automaton is that on each extreme of its capabilities, it shines.
